Hey, my name is David and I'm currently a student at Georgia Tech and am pursuing a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering (a Ramblin' Gamblin' Hell of an Engineer). So basically, you'll be seeing tons of space and aviation related posts on here.

Other things you'll be seeing on here: the Miami Heat, the Office, Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your Mother, Top Gear, Breaking Bad, Emma Watson, the Killers, and a bunch of other random things, like science and cool engineering stuff.

Feel free to ask questions, I'll try to answer them if I feel like it.

Senior year of college is shaping up to be the exact opposite of my senior year of high schiol. And by that I mean I basically spent 1/2 to 3/4 of the day in the band room doing nothing, and I’ll probably be spreading myself extremely thin this next year. Being an adult sucks…

Fox News spent a segment mocking and laughing at Illinois State University’s decision to accommodate LGBT students with all-gender restroom signs, stating, “we’re all a little confused by it.”

Turns out, a lot of people don’t share Fox’s bewilderment. 

The following day, host Steve Doocy conducted man-on-the-street interviews with the sign, asking random “Fox fans” what they thought it meant. 

Much to Fox’s dismay, not a single fan (including a young boy) responded to the question with the confusion and outrage that Fox expected. 

Watch the full interview — it’s pretty great. 

Womp womp

The more I read about and see graphic images of Malaysian 17, the more I just want to punch a fucking wall in.

I’ll never understand why people travel across the world to eat the same food, shop all day, and not visit and actually get to know a place.

I guess that’s just me, if that’s really what you want to do, I can’t stop you.

I was bored earlier and found out on Google Earth that Bogota, Colombia is almost directly geographically south of New York, NY, give or take a few New York City blocks.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to walk on the moon. The giant leap was made possible by decades of scientific research, rigorous testing, and new innovations spearheaded by NASA with collaborations by many other groups and organizations, one of which was GE. Among other contributions to the technology of the Apollo program, GE researchers developed a special silicon rubber for the astronaut’s boots. This week, to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the moon landing, GE, Android Homme and JackThreads collaborated on a new sneaker called The Missions, which Buzz Aldrin is wearing in the picture above. The sneakers feature lightweight carbon fiber used for jet engine components, and a hydrophobic coating similar to the materials that prevent ice from forming on wind turbines.

WHO WANTS TO BUY ME THESE?!

There were two Clery Act Safety Alerts (crime reports) today on the route from the student center to my apartment. Both involved a weapon, the first was a restaurant robbery and the second was a bunch of black guys in a van robbing people.

I’m officially never walking home again. 

The worst part about the train tracks outside my window has to be when the vibrations hit a natural frequency of something in my room, making a crapload of rattling and shaking noises. Can’t wait to move out of this shit-hole.
